Now that the news about Emma Watson being cast as Belle in the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast is finally here, it’s time to get our Dreamcast Machines powered up. And I don’t mean the ’90s gaming system.
Here are my top 5 picks to play the Beast alongside Emma Watson’s Beauty in Beauty and the Beast:
5. Chris Hemsworth
If he can play Thor, the god of thunder, then a beast should be no problem for Chris Hemsworth.
4. Sebastian Stan
It would not be Sebastian Stan’s first time playing a ferocious beast who’s heart of stone is melted by a gorgeous on-screen costar. This would pretty much be Bucky Barnes in Winter Soldier all over again.
3. Kit Harington
Kit Harington has already proven that he can portray the emotional loner in his role as Jon Snow on Game of Thrones. Not to mention that beastly, untamable mane of hair.
2. Sam Claflin
If his performance as Finnick Odair in the Hunger Games films isn’t enough to convince you, just look at that resemblance!
1. Rupert Grint
I would be lying if I said I didn’t have an ulterior motive with this pick. Seeing Emma and Rupert together on the big screen once more would be great. He already has that signature Prince Adam red hair. Plus, we all know how this scene would work out…
What do you think? Can any of these men measure up to Emma Watson? Who is your top pick to play the Beast? Let us know in the comments!
